Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra x leucophylla "Hurricane Creek White" (M-SG) Potted
Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra x leucophylla "Hurricane Creek White" is an exciting hybrid of two very special plants. Sarracenia rubra ssp. rubra has narrow, highly veined pitchers with short, pointed lids and deeply fragrant flowers. Sarracenia leucophylla "Hurricane Creek White" is a highly sought after collectors plant with tall, spectacular white pitchers in late autumn. There is high variability in these plants, grown from seed, and they already show great promise!

Temperature: 20 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods
